Ratings and Reviews
Good & getting there
Aug 2017-new updates with more hourly and extended forecast on the main screen itself is very convenient. It would be nice to have sunshine hours for current day also in addition only future days.
Oct 2014-though not much has changed, I decided to add few lines. This is the only app that provides total projected sunshine hours for a day. Useful when you're in the mountains and want to ensure you have sufficient sunshine to view the scenes. This is the only app that also forecasts expected snowfall in mm that no other app does.
Earlier- It still is the best app for canada as no other app could find smaller cities or boroughs. However for international locations it is less than perfect. Can find most bigger cities and adjacent areas for US though.
It would be nice if it could provide sunshine hours for the current day and not just for future.
Some usability issues
Good app, I like the way it looks and it tells you what you need to know. But there are some counterintuitive transitions - swiping back doesn't always get you to where you expected to go (i.e. The page you were on before). Also, the 'follow' feature seems to somehow turn on the 'alerts' for the places you've been, which quickly gets annoying if you travel a lot.
I work outside, and the Weather Network has always been pretty accurate. I also use Weather Bug and the local news to compare, and it seems like the Weather Network gets the closest. Also, they have a future radar that goes further into the future than others.
